A day in the life of Danny D'Amours

Intelligence is back…. yeah!

As I have previously mentioned, one of my favourite shows on TV (of which there are very few) is Intelligence which plays on CBC. After some rumours at the end of last season that the series might not be renewed, I was glad to see it back on the tube last night. I was a little surprised that it was actually on as I haven’t seen any advertising for it. It almost as it they were trying to sneak it by me. Now that I know that it is scheduled for Monday nights, I’ll be sure to watch it.

Others also seem to have noticed the lack of advertising for the show and other have high praise for the show:

I’m looking forward to next Monday night.

  2. I have never seen a tv show that I enjoyed so much as I did Intelligence. Would love to see another addition to this series.

  3. I agree with Denise. I started watching the series on NetFlix and was totally captivated by the series. Imagine my huge disappointment when I found out there were only two seasons and I may never know what happened to all the wonderful characters. Booooooo! Hisssss! I loved the show and am so sad.

  4. There is so much trash on tv a great series comes on and they won’t make season 3 something fishy in Denmark

  5. What a treat to find Intelligence. Great cast, script, shooting & editing. Strong female lead; very rare. So why is it out of production?

    Comment by Lauren Kirkwood | May 27, 2011

  6. Unbelievable. Canadian television will continue to be inferior to America’s if series as good as Intelligence are cancelled. I suspect (much like the series’ own plot) – foul play involving the US. Its the television version of the Avro Arrow!

  7. Just got done watching the series “Intelligence” Best show I have ever seen. I saw some place that the reason CBC was not running the 3rd season was for lack of ratings. My feelings is if they would have advertised it they would have gotten a huge audience. We first came upon it in Netflix just this past month. It has left me straving for more episodes. I’m a junkie for this show. Please brfing it back.

  10. what the #$%^!!!! this show is AWESOME, i do not understand why in Canada or the U.S. with all the free speech and rights that we have, that this show has been cancelled, it seems like some kind of ultimate irony. A martyr of a tv show. My new favorite, and that is something, i hate almost everything. WHY? Who do i have to blackmail to bring this show back to life? i feel like HBO is a perfect candidate to take this show over since CBC clearly cant handle it, another irony(im an American)? it came highly recommended to me via Netflix and now all my friends are also getting hooked on it. Bring it back or at least write something we can read, gotta know what happened at the end of season 2. youre killing me.

  11. This is the best show we have seen on TV in a long time!!!! My wife and I found it on Net flix and have been inthralled by the fast pace, great plot and dynamic characters. We are devastated to see that it just ends with the shooting and now we hear that the show has been cancelled?? Thats just crazy!! Look like politics as usual- getting too close to the truth on some level so it has to be censored. Really sad that a show of this caliber gets cancelled when all the “reality” junk TV is still running strong in the networks…

  12. Thanks to Netflix, I have had the opportunity to experience the superbly brilliant drama of “Intelligence”, purely addictive

    What a way to leave the fans, is there going to be a 3rd season or a movie?

    Comment by Melvyn | December 20, 2011

  13. Best show I have seen in a long time, I watched 2 seasons in a week! Im hooked!!

    Comment by Sharon Young | December 26, 2011

  14. My husband and I also got hooked on “Intelligence” via NetFlix. We watched both seasons this past week. Can’t believe it ended. It is one of the best shows ever.

    Comment by Tricia | January 29, 2012

  17. How crazy is that? I just discovered Intelligence, too, and it is far above any television show I have ever seen – what happened? CBC? not enough promotion – the scripts, the complex characters, wonderful actors – WOW – only 2 seasons? how disappointing…..also, love Da Vinci’s Inquest and only three seasons are on DVD, what’s up with that? – why didn’t Da Vinci City Hall fly?? – I shake my head in amazement. The best TV ever………

  18. i am also an american and my wife and myaself are completely baffeled that the best television series we have seen only ran for 2 seasons.we both are in our sixties and have seen alot of programs come and go . it is a travesty that such an engrossing and superlative program in all its various components should leave us with the regular mediocricy found on the boob tube .shame on those responsible for its demise!

  19. Shame on you CBS, this is what television should be ……..ENTERTAINING not the constant stream of “reality” drivel. Intelligence is well written,brilliantly acted and fast paced. Thank you NetFlix, this is what you do best!

    Comment by terry | April 28, 2012

  20. Note that Intelligence was broadcast by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation or CBC not the American network, CBS. It is amazing how Netflix has brought this gem of a short lived series to so many people.

    Comment by Danny D'Amours | April 30, 2012

  21. Intelligence via Netflix was so good that I would stay up until 4:00AM to squeeze in as many episodes as my eyes would stay open! I called Netflix to see if there was going to be or is a season 3. They do not know and I still do not know if it is confirmed from this blog site. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF IT IS IN THE WORKS! I can’t believe a show this good is over. PlEASE say that Jimmy wore his vest. Have someone take Jimmy to the hospital and save his life so we can have more episodes!

  22. Does this mean that it is on in the US now on Monday nights? I hope so. Greatest show in a very long time. I am addicted and if there is any advertisement, there will be a lot of fans. I will look for it on my guide site.

    Comment by connie | May 15, 2012

  23. Sorry to disappoint you but this post was referring to the premiere of season 2.
    As detailed in a later post (http://danny.damours.net/wordpress/lack-of-intelligence-at-the-cbc-intelligence-jpod-and-mvp-cancelled) Intelligence has been cancelled after season 2 and there will not be a season 3. It has been 4 years now and sadly there is no sign of a resurrection.

    I think a lot of people were anxious to find out what happened to Jimmy and the gang.

    Comment by Danny D'Amours | May 16, 2012

  24. This has to be one of the worst dissppointments for me. Please keep me informed if there is ever any news if you will.

    Thanks for your Kind reply.

  25. Lack of ratings please…..If anyone believes that I have some swamp land down in florida I want to sell. This is Obviously because the US or any government wants everyone to think they and who they employ are the good guys…God forbid we should witness any corruption in the government, because everyone knows that would never happen…..

    Comment by John S. | June 24, 2012

  26. Intelligence is about the best series I’ve ever seen. I can’t believe that someone could drop a show like this. The ratings, if they really weren’t there, is the fault of the producers. Hard to imagine that such an ingenious show could have been created by morons. They probably won’t even know of the massive disappointment out there in the ending of such a great show. I hope the fault of the people responsible is visited on them the rest of their careers. They all blew their best shot and , hopefully, their own.

    Comment by Bud | July 28, 2012

  27. I can’t believe this show is going to be cancelled.
    The cast and story are so believable and “intelligent” to the state of mind these days.
    PLEASE leave this show on – it will be missed – its a good show with good cast and great story line.

    Comment by ELLIE | April 8, 2014

  28. Found this show on Netflix in 2014. Was soooooo upset that it ended with the shooting. Still hanging off the cliff, hoping for more. Great cast, great show. Please give us more!!!!!

    Comment by Mcmanus | August 6, 2017

  33. We, both my husband and I just watched the 2 seasons, loved the show, the acting, and do not understand why there isn’t a season 3 or 4 or 5….I’ve seen shows that don’t even merit a 2nd season,…and they just keep on ???

  36. Wow! What a great series and they don’t want to make season 3. They should be hung by their ball sacks for being such dumb asses.
